Miami R1: Dodig def. [LL] Kamke 6-0 2-6 7-6(5)

Scoreline is sort of deceiving (at least the first set scoreline) since Dodig rarely had easy holds of serve throughout the match, and struggled throughout the entire match to hold. There was a long break between the second and third sets, which maybe (?) would explain the struggle to hold serve for Dodig.

Dodig saved four break points the first service game of the match, saved 0-40 against his serve and four more BPs at *2-0 in a very long deuce game, and had 30 all on his serve at *4-0. Kamke won 41% of return points in the first set; he saved three BPs before being broken in another long deuce game to go down 0-*4 and had two game points before being broken to get bageled in the first set.

In the second set, Kamke won his first game for 1 all in the set to 30, after missing all first serves in the game. Kamke held serve again before breaking Dodig twice in a row to take the set. Kamke only lost five service points in the second set and Dodig won only 48% of service points, with a below 50% first serve percentage.

In the third set, Kamke broke to 30 to take the early lead. Kamke also had 30-*15 at 4-*2 to take complete control, before Dodig held hitting back to back aces to get to game point. Dodig had break point to break back immediately for 1 all and 15-30 to break at 2-*3, which were not taken, until finally breaking serve for 4 all, after Kamke had two game points. Dodig held to love for the first time in the match to hold for 5-4 and had 0-30 to break to win the match, before Kamke won four straight points to hold. Dodig held to 15 for 6-5 and Kamke saved a match point against him to hold to send the match into a final set decider.

In the tiebreak, both guys held serve until Dodig got the first mini-break for 4-*2. Kamke got things back on serve for 5-4, before Dodig won two straight points from 5 all to win the match.

Both guys have been really, really struggling and a win here was very important for both. Mayer in the next round will present a great opportunity for Dodig to make the third round here...........but hopefully Flo does what is required and handles his business. Match took 2:42 to complete.

Balls to heavy for Kamke in the breaker, as expected as they come.

Also Filo, you must have quite a lot of spare time these days I take it?

Man your analyzing too much something you didnt watch, scoreboard can be very deceiving. I dont see the point in guessing what happened on the court

I'm not analyzing the matches, simply detailing exactly how the match proceeded based on the scores. I would analyze but I'm not in Miami. I do have a friend at the courts though, I'll see if I can get him to give me a run down on the matches today.

But not of this one, though. This match seems like it was ultra muggy.

Such a weird looking scoreline
Anyway, good that Dodig got a win here, and if he serves better he might even beat Funky Flo.

Mayer has a horrible overall record in North America and is not 100%. It's a huge opportunity for Dodig, but he's probably also in bad form given the way this match played out. Confidence will be a huge factor, as will Flo's motivational levels.

The scoreboard thought it could deceive us with the lack of match footage, but not with Filo V around.

how bad is dodig . he can't beat anybody just the balls pulling him out of the troubles . shame, for one such hard worker I thought after last year's great season he would work even harder and better but this isn't the case

Based on the report I just read, they're saying there was a loud contingent of Croatians cheering Dodig. I'm guessing they motivated him to the victory. Dodig may not be talented but he does fight, I give him credit for that.

Re: Miami R1: Dodig def. [LL] Kamke 6-0 2-6 7-6(5)

dodig was shitting this one in with ease... was actually winning it too easy... i know... i was watching the sb... to me it looked exactly like it was too easy... so dodig slowed down, kamke caught up... and took it to the 3rd set tiebreak...

... whereupon dodig clean ripped the testes out from within the kamke scrotum with his bare fist...

brutal and very dodig-like...

Re: Miami R1: Dodig def. [LL] Kamke 6-0 2-6 7-6(5)

yet another day at the office for GOATdig - winning 3rd set tiebreaks to him is like taking a leak for us early in the morning

He's been number 32 in the world FFS.
BTW, where did you find this awesome machine/computer/calculator that shows what's talent and what's not?
